    Hi Sophie

    What kind of pain is it ? I get on/off pain in my ribs sometimes front sometimes back sometimes sides it's a pain in the bum to be honest and can be quite tender to touch .Unfortunately even though I have this with a multitude of other symptoms I have not been diagnosed as peri menopause as net my gp is unsympathetic and I'm in process of deciding whether to see someone else or change doctors

      Yes exactly that - and it is a pain in the bum - wondering if it's gall bladder pain as I know it's a symptom. If I were you I'd try and find a new female doctor - I've had some absolute horrors who simply wouldn't listen and demanded i have CBT - now moved and have new surgery - the difference is amazing - totally understanding and did tests and confirmed I was in peri - I've only had one period since April so it seems things are moving swiftly to full meno although I appreciate this can be a long lengthy journey - hope all is well Sheena and good luck with everything. Thank you for commenting x

    If it is on the right side, it very well could be gallbladder attacks. Does it get worse after fatty or spicy foods? Are you nauseated?

      It is on the right side - very occasionally nauseated. Had this for weeks late last year - had scans etc etc but all fine including bloods - I have about 3 blood tests per year at the moment due to anxiety - however this pain gets my anxiety going and I don't want to be a pain to doctors as they've made me feel like a total time waster - it's a real roller coaster and really gets me down
